Wait – This Is a Baby Shower?

Last weekend, we threw a surprise baby shower for Stacie, a friend of mine from college.

Her husband and I calculated a careful plan to ensure she wouldn’t be tipped off. The plan required a lot of sunscreen, lying, and parking around the corner.

As Stacie walked into the house, Husbanks was watching golf, so nothing seemed strange. It wasn’t until she walked into our kitchen and noticed her entire Bible study group staring at her that she started to wonder if this was an ordinary Saturday.

Look at how surprised she was! I laugh every time I look at this picture.

We made her think she was picking me up to go to the pool. That is why she has on a swimming suit under her clothes.

We picked the date because Stacie’s college roommates were in town. They were in on it (responsible for delivery of the Stacie). The best part about their involvement is that they put on tons of sunscreen before they picked me up because they wanted to be authentic.

Now that is commitment.

Stacie is due November 2.
